I figure I kind of deserve it. It has been a very productive week. I got my room clean, taxes done, got a job interview for Monday, got all the necessary stuff gathered to got take my permit test tomorrow, I’ve been keeping up with my workout routine, been training myself to get up earlier and earlier everyday, read two books, been working on my art everyday for at least a half hour, most of the time more, been writing in my journal everyday.
yup. I would say very productive first week of intentionally trying not to procrastinate. And since really, the only two things I was majorly procrastinating on was getting a job, and getting my drivers license, I’m off to a good start since I’ve taken the first steps in securing those things this week. so I’m gonna chill today. My nerves are a little worked up knowing I have that permit test on Saturday, and the job interview on Monday, so I need to not worry about too much today.
But next week, it’s on again. If I have a job by the end of next week (doubtful, even if I do great on the interview, because these things take time, of course) I’m gonna have a lot to learn about budgeting time around an 8 hour a day job. If I don’t have a job, well, I’m pretty much just gonna try to keep myself busy anyway, so I don’t fall back into a lazy pattern.
First thing I’m going to do once/if I get the job, is start working on a budget, before I even get my first paycheck. In fact, I probably should start working on just kind of a basic idea this weekend. Because, whether or not I get the job, having a basic idea for a budget would be a good idea. I can always adjust the numbers if I need to for another job if this doesn’t work out.
So yeah, at least I’m starting to see a bit of light at the end of the tunnel here. yay!
